About this author

Dorte Hummelshoj Jakobsen is a teacher from Denmark, teaching English at upper secondary level. In her spare time she reads and writes crime fiction in English and Danish, and in 2010 she sold her first flash stories to American magazines or publishers.


One story appeared in Discount Noir (edited by Ste Weddle & Patricia Abbott)

Since then she has published two collections of flash fiction, "Candied Crime" (humour) and "Liquorice Twists" (a bit darker).

Her bestsellers are the romantic ghost story "Heather Farm" (suspense plus romance in the Dunes near the Danish west coast) and the cosy novel "The Cosy Knave" (European title: "Murder deLight")


I had some trouble (eh, I made a really stupid mistake) yesterday when I wanted to publish my Tora Skammelsen short story. But now it is there, and I hope it will be well received out there in the big world.


The Woman Behind The Curtain – $ 0.99 for 40 pages – that is not bad, is it?

"Jeg havde læst uddraget, og synes den lød fantastisk spændende…

Men måtte konstatere at lige så meget den lover i den spændende start, lige så meget skuffer den!

Jeg synes den spreder sig over alt for mange grene som forfatterne ikke evner at holde..." Read more of this review »

Wonderful setting (remote Scottish island), great characters and good plot.
A bit long-winded, however.
